In my my younger days, when I was much more sensible, I would start potting at the end of March when the wildlife conservation season had ended and do a bit each weekend. Now I leave it until the very last moment – usually Chelsea week in late May and try and do it in all one go. Thankfully, this year I didn’t have the cacti and mesembyanthemums to do (most of these are potted on/repotted every other year) however it was still far too stressful – never again!
It should be noted I suppose that in the past I had probably three times more plants than I have now. Anyway here are some photographs of work in progress. I will show photographs of completed greenhouses in my next post.
